Schaumburg, Ill. (June 10, 2015)Assurance, a Top 50 U.S. insurance brokerage, continued its commitment to giving on June 4, 2015, when a number of employees spent their work day volunteering with Little City. This is the third year Assurance volunteers assisted the organization.

Little City has successfully created hope, changed lives and challenged the limits placed on children and adults with autism and other intellectual and developmental disabilities. Little City assists hundreds of children and adults along with their families throughout the Chicago area by providing education, training, skills and encouragement that enable individuals to become their own hero.

The volunteer opportunity is one of 17 similar events scheduled for 2015 where Assurance employees donate their time to deserving nonprofit organizations. All volunteer days are organized by the company’s employee-driven charitable foundation, Assurance Caring Together (ACT).  

On June 4, Assurance volunteers spent the day with seniors at Little City. This included serving the seniors coffee, exercising with them and even playing bingo. The volunteers also served lunch and aided them in current events and games. Overall, nine Assurance volunteers gave companionship to 47 senior citizens throughout the day, helping them with daily activities and arts and crafts.

“The work that Little City does for our big city is invaluable,” said Alyssa Mueller, account coordinator at Assurance. “Both the seniors and Little City staff very much appreciated our presence. We’re happy that we were able to have a jam-packed day with such great people.”

Under the motto “We Can Be Heroes”, Assurance employees donated over 17,000 labor hours in a ten year span through volunteer opportunities organized by ACT.
